Went to her for 6 years- even before she opened her new office. Found out years into seeing her that she prescribed a medication at a higher dose than medically acceptable. She would always look at the computer and barely make eye contact. I lost my insurance and when I told her she offered me $200/follow up. I can’t afford that so asked for sliding scale. Refused to offer that. So rude after years of seeing her to abandon her patients bc of inability to pay high costs. Makes me hate modern med.
